He needs to resign. If Flynn had to go, so does Sessions. I won't EVER trust him, and neither should anyone else.
He. Lied. Under. Oath.
An Optimist would say...score one for ethics!
A Pessimist would say...this now confirms that they have Comey fully in their pocket.
An independent counsel would do a great deal to make this more transparent and less partisan.

I am suggesting both Trump and Sessions (and others) "best interest" are tied to their own "self-interest"..
If that self interest benefits from Russian assistance..that is fine.
Trump has been clear that he sees little difference between Russia and the US in the ways that matter to him and admires Putin as a strong-man dictator. It isn't Russian interests vs. US Interests to Trump. It is Trump's interests vs. Everyone else's and that leaves plenty of room for assists from Russia.

So Flynn lied about contact with Russia, Trump lied about having a relationship with Russia, and now its out that Sessions lied about having contact with Russia.
Yeah, nothing to see here. /sarcasm
How can anyone deny how bad this smells?
When first asked in January about Mr. Flynn’s contacts with Mr. Kislyak, the White House said that there had been only a text message and phone call between the men at the end of December, and that both came before the United States imposed sanctions. That was quickly contradicted by news reports.
Mr. Flynn’s story then began changing, and the White House eventually acknowledged the two men had discussed the sanctions and how the two countries could move past the acrimony once Mr. Trump was in office.
The New Yorker reported this week that Mr. Kushner had met with Mr. Kislyak at Trump Tower in December. Hope Hicks, a White House spokeswoman, confirmed on Thursday that Mr. Flynn was also at the meeting in response to questions from a New York Times reporter.
The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS, commonly pronounced "sifius") is an inter-agency committee of the United States Government that reviews the national security implications of foreign investments in U.S. companies or operations. Chaired by the United States Secretary of the Treasury, CFIUS includes representatives from 16 U.S. departments and agencies, including the Defense, State and Commerce departments, as well as (most recently) the Department of Homeland Security.

So much time and resources being wasted on this ridiculous Sessions non-scandal.
Here is a real Russia related scandal where a full-blown investigation should be initiated.

I'm sure it has been said here many times. I didn't take the time to browse 20+ pages. Sessions didn't lie, didn't say an un-truth and didn't even play games with his wording. He stated that he didn't speak with Russia about the campaign. There is no proof and not even a rumor that he has.
Facts have a way of biting people in the ass. Like Pelosi...who called Sessions a liar and accused him of perjury. That is a lie or simply an ancient, brain-dead bitch spouting bs about other people that she doesn't agree with. Her comment and accusation is in fact a lie.
Maybe it is time for the old, stupid bitch to be put down. Or fired.
I'll take the small bite of his recusal...
But having just finished watching the full press briefer..He looked more and more like he was trying to throw the press a bone with his recusal in hopes it would go away...Lot's of "I don't recall" in Q&A..
He might trust Comey to keep him safe while he recuses himself...Let's see where it goes..
